The Matsumoto Brewery Tap Room is a small and cozy bar located just off Nakamachi-dori, operated by the local craft beer brewery – Matsumoto Brewery.
As the name suggests, they have a range of local beers on tap as well as a selection of bottled beers and also various soft drinks including locally made apple and grape juices.
The Tap Room is run by Hongo-san, a lively and energetic woman with an infectious smile! She has an excellent knowledge of craft beer and is happy to help you find the perfect beer for your mood and palette.

Bottled Craft Beer, made locally in Matsumoto
They offer a selection of craft beers on tap too!
The Tap Room is spread over two floors, the first consists of a standing bar which can accommodate up to just five guests at any one time, but there is eating for a further twelve people on the second floor. As you can imagine, on a busy weekend night the place gets pretty busy pretty fast, but don’t let this put you off, it is well worth popping down to try and get a seat, and to sample the local goods!
A fresh Matsumoto Brewery beer!
Unfortunately, the Tap Room doesn’t have a website of its own, but the Matsumoto Brewery does, and although it is mainly in Japanese you can easily navigate to the location of the Tap Room on their About Us page, it also hasn’t information about their other bar and activities.
